Key Differentiators

  • The key distinguishable characteristics of the studio since it’s inception has always been the studio’s location.
  • Great care is always taken to create an environment that is inspiring and conducive for creative work, and the current space is nestled amongst the lush greenery of the fringes of Bukit Timah Nature Reserve.
  • Mr Lim and Karen place emphasis on developing a students understanding of the core principles of ceramics.

Client Testimonial

Blackjack Studio Pottery holds very special place in my heart. Both Mr Lim and Karen have their own strengths and have taught me everything from the basics of slab making to the advanced nuances of ceramics such as tool-making, clay-recycling to kiln-stacking. There is much support in the beginning phases of classes, however, ample space is given to each of the student to develop our own styles in the more advanced stages. The lessons and studio space are structured to allow exploration of material in a supportive environment. I find this method, extremely productive and useful for a person who enjoys the slow pace of pottery while exploring different techniques – in which both Mr Lim and Karen are well versed in addressing questions of all sorts. I enjoy this pottery studio a lot and will continue to stay here to be mentored by my teachers.
